What book made you fall in love with the genre you write?
Mika Jolie: I've read so many books, but the one I remember the most is
The Passionate Lover by Carole Mortimer under Harlequin Presents. I
found it at used bookstore and from that moment I was hooked. I'd count the day
for her releases and stay up all night and read.
What is your favorite genre?
Mika Jolie: I have such an eclectic taste when it comes to books and
music. Having said that, if I had to pick one, it would have to be Contemporary
Romance. This genre tackles so many relatable issues that women deal with on
this beautiful journey called life. But also, at the heart of those novels is
learning to forgive, discovering something new, loving the men in our lives, our

would it be and how would you rewrite it?
Mika Jolie: Hmm probably How I Met Your Mother. Once Robin and Barney
became a couple, I found myself rooting for them. In my revised version, they'd
stayed married, he follows her when she gets her dream job. And instead of the
Mother being a small part of the story, I'd make the season ending
about Ted and Tracy.
What is your favorite part of meeting your readers? New readers?
Mika Jolie: Where do I begin? There's nothing like the ability to
actually see the person live, to hug, to talk, to laugh, to discuss characters
that moved and provoked them. And really just to get to know everyone on a

The final frontier. The end of dating. The number one cause of divorce.
I bet you every man who is about to take the plunge experiences a wide range
of feelings. As a guy, whose wedding day is only seven days away, I know this.
Anxiety—Nerves are kicking in. Yeah, even confident, cocky guys like me are
bound to face nuptial stage fright.
Let's face it, forever is kind of a long time, right?
